Alice in Wonderland : Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

I LOVE the music and songs in this 2 part movie and was wondering if they ever made a soundtrack and if so, how do I get it?

Re: Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

Yes, an album was released, but from what I've heard about it, it's like one of those old "Storyteller" things with snippets of dialogue. Not a soundtrack as such.

How do I get it?

Re: Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

The LP hasn't been available for years. It's super-rare.

Re: Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?


I have the LP. It comes with a book with pictures from the movie. The book is great, but the LP isn't anything special - no songs from the movie, just the story with sound clips. I only got it last year and it was brand new, so there are still some around.

Re: Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

Where did you get it from? Id like to buy one if they are even still available.

There's one for sale here

No accompanying book though, so way overpriced.

In addition to the above-mentioned, there's also a pre-production version of Ringo Starr's "Nonsense", that circulates among collectors. It's not much different from the movie version, except that it lacks overdubbed sound effects, as well as Alice saying "I'm not really sure, but sort of.", after Ringo sings his "Don't you love nonsense?" line.

I should also point this out: From all the sources I've read, this movie was filmed as early as March 12, 1985, and wrapped sometime around May that same year, which was when Ringo shot his cameo. So therefore, his cameo may have been one of, if not the very last thing, they shot for this film.

I can't believe they never released the songs from this film. I really love it.

It was probably only a promotional release, but there is a copy in the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at the New York Public Library (http://catalog.nypl.org/iii/encore/record/C%7CRb11744264?lang=eng).

Re: Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but in the actual movie, did Natalie Gregory do any of her own singing?

Re: Was there ever a soundtrack for this film?

I don't think the soundtrack was really ever available, but I found this website and they "made" the soundtrack for fellow fans. It's probably not the best out there but I was thrilled to death to find this and be able to dowload the songs for free!! I have been searching for them forever, and now they are on my iPod!!
